|Data type||Range||Default value|
|REG_DWORD||0 | Number of bytes||0|
Specifies the size of the nonpaged pool.
|0||The system calculates an optimal value for this entry based on the amount of physical memory on the computer, and then adjusts this value if the amount of memory changes. This value is optimal for most systems.|
|Number of bytes||Creates a nonpaged pool of the specified size. This overrides the value calculated by the system and prevents the system from adjusting this value dynamically. This setting can degrade performance.|
You must restart the computer before a change to this value takes effect.
For more information on paged pools and nonpaged pools, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base link on the Web Resources page. Search the Knowledge Base for Article Q126402, or use the keywords PagedPoolSize and NonPagedPoolSize.
Changing this value can degrade the performance of your computer.
